Privacy

 

We are committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information we collect about you to process orders and to provide a more meaningful browsing and shopping experience when you visit us at Synchronopedia.com. We may also use it to tell you about changes in our services or about special offers we think you'll find valuable (if you ask us to).

 

Under no circumstances will Synchronopedia release any of your information to a third party. We do not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others. If there is an offer or opportunity we think you might be interested in, we will tell you ourselves, and then only if you have selected the check box indicating that you would like to receive such notices. We stand by our No Junk Mail guarantee. 

 

Synchronopedia uses cookies which are small text files stored on your computer that record your computer's unique identification number and shopping cart's contents -- but they do not contain personal information. No one other than Synchronopedia can access them. We use them to save you time re-typing information into our shopping cart if you left suddenly or before you completed a transaction. We may also use the cookies to track which parts of the site are being visited most frequently. Knowing this helps us to minimize your time trying to navigate around the site. 

 

If you have any questions or comments about our Privacy policy please let us know by sending an e-mail to our customer service.

 

A notable exception to our Privacy policy is that Synchronopedia reserves the right to cooperate fully with local, provincial, state, federal and international officials in any investigation which may relate to any content that you may have provided to us (including personal or private electronic communication, or financial transactions transmitted on Synchronopedia.com) or purported unlawful activities in which you may be involved.

Security

 

Credit Card Security

 

"Internet commerce is no more prone to fraud than other types of payment mechanisms."

– Canadian Bankers Association

 

"You often read in the press that consumers are worried about ordering online. In reality, it is not the consumers who have to worry, but the merchants. If you are a consumer, the chance of your credit card number being intercepted as it travels over the Internet are microscopically small. But if you are a merchant the chance of [being given an] order with a stolen credit card is more significant." 

Avoiding Fraud Orders, Yahoo! Store (store.yahoo.com/vw/fraud.html)

 

"... it's actually much safer to enter your credit card number on a secure on-line order form than it is to give your credit card to a waiter at a restaurant."

–  Internet ScamBusters (http://www.scambusters.org/CreditCardFraud.html)

 

Concern about the safety of Internet transactions is understandable, but shopping at Synchronopedia is 100%safe. As an online vendor, our business success or failure rests with the commercial viability, track record, integrity, technological capabilities and financial strength, and stability of our bank and credit card processing transaction partner. Every credit card purchase you make is processed and backed by Synchronopedia, WorldPay and the WestMinster Bank.

 

All the credit card information you submit to Synchronopedia is transferred using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology that works with Netscape Navigator (versions 2.0 and higher) and Microsoft Internet Explorer (versions 3.0 and higher). These browsers employ state-of-the-art 128-bit encryption technology to encode your information in such a way that it is not viewable to anyone else but the intended party.

 

This SSL technology is actually a security “protocol” (a set of rules) that provides privacy for the individual over the Internet. This protocol allows applications that to communicate with each other in such a way that they cannot be “eavesdropped.” Synchronopedia has taken great pains to select an impeccable supplier of secure financial services. The best guarantee you can have is to know that we have placed our complete trust and our own financial well-being in their hands.

Email Security

 

Synchronopedia takes serving you very seriously. Once you have joined our e-mailing list, if we ever need to contact you or our entire member base, we will do so directly. We will not use an agency to contact you on our behalf. And we will not rely on our customers to forward emails to others in order to pass along one of our messages.

 

Here are some of our recommendations to you for staying safe and secure when you use email online.

 

  1. Never open attachments from unknown sources. They may contain what are known as "letter bombs" or "viruses," which can damage your PC. Many email programs provide a “previewer” that let’s you look “inside” the email without actually opening it. Use the preview feature of your email program. Use an anti-virus program too, that checks for viruses that can accompany email. Email is by far the most likely way most people will be infected by a computer virus. Take this seriously and save yourself a lot of potential grief.

  1. Always remember to sign out when you are done, especially if  you are using a public terminal, at an internet cafe or a library for example. It's quick, easy and may inhibits your account from being accessed by unwanted trespassers. Also, close your browser when you are ready to end your Internet session.

  1. Don't reply to unsolicited messages ("spam") mail, or other harassing or offensive mail. By responding, you confirm that you have an active e-mail address. Try instead to identify source's e-mail service provider or the customer service department of the hosting service and lodge a complaint with them. Most companies have strong policies about “spamming” and will take corrective action. Most email programs also have filters that you can set up to direct incoming email. Use your filters to either block the sender’s email or simply direct the email straight to the trash.

  1. Browsers are constantly being updated, especially with new security features. Try to use the most up-to-date Internet software. The updates often address exactly the kinds of online security issues you face. With over 300 million users on the ‘net (and still growing hourly), rarely is your security issue a unique one.

  1. Where possible, use a secure network. Most corporate networks and Internet service providers employ fulltime staff who watch for potential security problems and act to protect users from malicious users who may try to steal personal information that is transferred through the network. While the risk is small, use caution when on any unfamiliar network. Use stations maintained by sources you trust, or ask if the Internet terminal you are using is protected against security break-ins.

  1. While we do not currently have need of a password for our Web site, you may employ passwords in your email program. We strongly recommend that you change your password often. The quick act of changing your password can ensure your e-mail remains private. In addition, passwords that use both letters and numbers are much more difficult to crack.

  1. It goes in concert then, that you shouldn’t share your password with anyone else, including friends and family. It only takes one person to tell “just one” other person and your security is threatened. Legitimate network and system administrators should have no reason to ask for your password. If asked, use skepticism and common sense to determine whether or not the requesting individual truly represents your service/network provider.

Digital Certificate

 

A digital certificate is an electronic equivalent to a driver's license, passport or membership card. A digital certificate is used by Web entities (you and Synchronopedia, for example, are Web entities) to electronically prove a Web identity or to electronically right that you have rightful access to information or services online in a particular Web site area. Digital Certificates are primarily used to identify people and  Web sites. This "proof of identification is crucial to secure e-business. A digital certificate provides you with trust and security when you are communicating or doing business on the Internet.

 

We mention this lesser-understood aspect of "safe Internet practice" to increase your confidence and trust in doing business electronically with Synchronopedia..com.  

 

Digital Certificates are based on an encryption technology called Public Key Infrastructure (or PKI). An earlier encryption technology called Symmetric Key Encryption used an encryption key which was the same as the decryption key. PKI is a giant leap forward because it is an encryption system that uses a unique key pair consisting of a private key that is known only by the owner, and a public key that is widely known. As we mentioned earlier, a digital certificate gives you trust and security when you communicate or do business on the Internet by providing these four essential trust factors:

 
Authentication

knowing with absolute certainty with whom you are communicating.

 

Integrity

keeping the content of the communication intact after it is created.

 

Confidentiality

keeping the content of the communication secret from unauthorized readers.

 

Non-repudiation

having proof of all parties approval after a transaction.

 

 

To determine if you are really dealing with the financial and hosting partners with whom Synchronopedia is entrusting its business, you can check their digital certificates at the appropriate time, typically during a secure transaction.

 

The people who host our Web site and guarantee secure, safe, 24-hour, 7-days-per-week access to our Web site is CanHost.

 

The people who process our credit card transactions and ensure that you are treated fairly and that your financial information remains private and secure is WorldPay

 

You can check CanHost's and WorldPay's digital certificates. After you have clicked on "Add to Cart" and selected your payment option, shipping method preference and taxes (if any), you will press the "Purchase" button. After inputting your address information you will press "Enter." At this point you are entering into CanHost's secure area. It will be a predominantly white screen with red letters. At this point, you can select "Properties" in your browser under the "File" drop-down menu. Select "Certificates" and you will be presented with CanHost's digital certificate. Clicking on "Proceed to Credit Card Processing" securely passes your information from CanHost to WorldPay. At this point you can review WorldPay's digital certificate using the same method. The presence of these digital certificates provide you with the peace of mind that you know with whom you are dealing.
